It has always been my intention to have the section headers in the draft
that I'd sent around be normative, with the text in between be
"explanations"; people who read the titles (and skip everything else)
should understand at a basic level what we expect. We may wish to make
this clear through markup.

As stated in my other mail, I do think the "Medium-specific" section is
redundant and should probably go, but I'd like to see what other people
think first. Other than that, I did try to reduce the length of the
explanations somewhat, in accordance with your suggestion in this mail,
but am reluctant to throw them out entirely.

This end should point toward the ground if you want to go to space.

If it starts pointing toward space you are having a bad problem and you
will not go to space today.
